​​​Why we give

The San Jose Evergreen Community College District is special because our alumni, friends, faculty and staff, students and parents are so passionate about making San Jose a better place. They generously give back to the college community. The stories behind each gift reveal the grit, gratitude and optimism that define our SJECCD community.

Many business partners and other organizations contribute to the District Foundation because our District Colleges educates the next generation of workers and citizens of the region. The District Foundation is vital to future economic development.

"When someone is well prepared, they make a positive impact with their efforts - at work, at home and in the community." stated a Donor.

Ben Franklin once said, "An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest." Investing in students at the San Jose/Evergreen Community College District will pay dividends for the entire community. Help others pursue their dream of higher education as, perhaps, you once did. Consider paying it forward by giving to the annual fund, an existing scholarship fund or even establishing a new one! There are many options available; contact us today.
